How to write an effective classified ad

To start, your ad copy should always lead off with the item for sale, service offered, or location of property for sale or rent.

  • Be descriptive. The more information you provide to the reader, the better the response will be to your ad.
  • Always include the price of an item for sale.
  • Avoid abbreviations. They make your ad harder to read and less effective.
  • Run your ad for an ample length of time. In many cases, it takes just one good call to make your ad pay off.
